3 Important Reasons to See Dr. Jim DeCapite DDS

As we head into summer in the Motor City, regular visits to Dr. Jim DeCapite can help keep teeth and gums healthy. In between cleanings and exams, though, we know our patients in the Livonia, Redford, and the surrounding areas of Metro Detroit may need to visit our office for other reasons.

At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we want our patients to feel comfortable and to know when they need to come to see us. Our team is committed to patient dental health.

Dr. DeCapite encourages everyone to visit the office in Livonia at any time if there is a concern, and especially for any of the following important reasons:

  • Toothache: A toothache does not go away by itself. It usually means something is wrong and needs professional attention. Often, a toothache indicates a cavity that needs to be filled before the pain will subside.
  • Sensitivity: When teeth are sensitive to hot or cold, it can indicate an issue such as tooth decay, a broken tooth, or even gum disease. While there are a number of over-the-counter products made for sensitive teeth, a visit to Doctor Jim is necessary to make sure there is nothing serious causing the sensitivity.
  • Dry mouth: Stress and certain medications can cause a dry mouth, as can more serious health conditions. Dry mouth can lead to other dental problems and should be treated professionally here in the office.
